Boomkat Product Review:
Neo-grime's pre-eminent architect returns six special moves for Lit City Trax. The follow-up to his Fatima Al Qadiri-starring first volume projects further into a holographic soundfield of disembodied, octave-scaling R&B vocal snippets and glassy synth contours modelling mercurial, 3D hybriddims. In the process, he's brought forward Grime's stylish swerve in favour of aggier elements, resulting in stunning pieces like serpentine sublow killah 'First Love' and the spectral digital chorales of 'Something Old, Something New', or the riddling structures of 'More Pain'. Quite crucially, this is music which evokes a sense of the unknown, extrapolating a new, as-yet-unidentified emotion from familiar elements reduced to their essence and diffused into alien new shapes. It's simply some of the most beguiling, forward music around right now.
